Women and Mass Media Course Outline.
A complete upper division or graduate course outline for examining the media's effects on sex role stereotyping of women in society is presented in this paper. Various sections of the paper include (1) course objectives designed to explore how the media portrays women, how the media treats the changing role of women in society, and whether the media serves to advance the acceptance of women in new roles; (2) a course schedule including topics and readings for each of ten weeks; (3) discussions of course evaluation policies and policies on late papers and missed examinations; (4) project assignments; and (5) a bibliography containing references to books, periodicals, papers, and audiovisual materials suggested for use in the course outline. Suggestions for the format of the class meetings are given and discussions of the two primary texts for the course, "Hearth and Home: Images of Women in the Mass Media," edited by Gaye Tuchman, Arlene Kaplan Daniels, and James Benet, and "Women and the Mass Media: Sourcebook for Research and Action," edited by Matilda Butler and William Paisley, are provided.
